stock down sharply today after reporting disappointing earnings moments ago. john fortt breaking down the numbers. 10.7 pv 10.7% lower. >> yeah, the stock traded up into the close. revenue fell short. $568.6 million versus $590 expected. eps flat, basically zero. 3 cents expected. guidance also disappointed. the mid point of guidance is higher than the $634 million analysts were expecting. the profitability, the eps, is short. if you look at gross billings, what they had last quarter was $1.29 billion. that's just money collected from groupons. this was down quarter over quarter, a problem they've had in the past. barely above flat year over year. 4-x impact had some effect on that. it's definitely something to watch. a big culprit here is europe. growth was up 1.3% versus 80% revenue wise for north america. that showing up as a big problem for them. also, operating cash and free cash flow both just above half of what they were last quarter. they're also spending money on capital expenditures. investors sure to have lots of questions about all that. >> all right, john. thank you
